Large Rustic Halfmoon Bay Cottage Guesthouse Steps to Beach

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Large space with 4 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 living room cottage across the street from a beautiful ocean beach, regional park and boat launch. Surrounded by park forest with well maintained walking and bike trails. Lots of space for all ages to relax and play. The house has a selection of outdoor games, board games, playing cards, puzzles, books, netflix, wireless access and 2 DVD players.

It is truly a cottage in that it is not fancy or contemporary. It's cozy, warm, comfortable and well-equipped. A place to get away and relax with family and friends. It was built in the 1950s and only had 2 owners before us. Many of the elements from it's history are still in the house - dishes, furniture, some artwork, piano... . It has older mismatched furniture, cabinets and cutlery etc. It is has the kind of features that you would find in a an older well-loved personally-owned cottage near the beach. The outside is a spacious .67 acre work-in-progress surrounded by maintained trails on 2 sides.

The house is next to Coopers Green Park, which has a wonderful swimming beach and boat launch. You can book the hall by the hour through the SCRD. The Halfmoon Bay Cafe and General Store are a quick 3 min drive or pleasant 25 min walk away. They are both worth visiting. Grab a treat and take a walk to the pier then pick up essentials on your way back. The town of Sechelt is a 15 min drive east and the town of Madeira Park is a 17 min drive west.

Why Jeni Stafford chose Halfmoon Bay

We love this house because it can accommodate a relatively large family or friend gathering and because of it's proximity to the park and beach.

What makes this house unique

The house is in a beautiful quiet rural setting close to the ocean, hiking trails, and boat launch.

Highly Recommend this Rustic Home

  • 4 of 5

The owners of this property definitely deserve a 5-star rating. They were very responsive, the cottage was extremely well stocked and there were tons of games and activities. Very private, spacious, great location, and fairly priced. We would definitely stay there again.

Nice location just a short stroll from a lovely pebble beach.......

  • 4 of 5

The house is old so could do with some tlc but is very spacious, and property was clean and well equipped with everything we needed for our short stay including a highchair and pack 'n' play, beach towels etc. We enjoyed the pebble beach just a short stroll across the street too.

The owner was very welcoming and friendly and all communications were prompt including return of our security deposit, thanks Jeni

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words and feedback Stu and Angela. It was a pleasure hosting you and your family. The house is old and we are hoping that this will eventually just enhance the character and cottage feeling of the place. We have plans to change all the windows, paint the outside, replace counter tops, tiles etc, and add a flower and large vegetable garden for guests to explore and enjoy. Come back and visit sometime!
